Snow Melting Mat – WSMM
Radiant heating is permitted on pool decks, as long as it follows NEC 680.10 standards.
Please refer to page 4 on the Pursuant to NEC 680.10 Deck Area Heating code document, which states:
“Underground wiring shall not be permitted under the pool or within the area extending 1.5 m (5ft) horizontally from the inside wall of the pool unless this wiring is necessary to supply pool equipment permitted by this article. Where space limitations prevent wiring from being routed a distance 1.5 m (5ft) or more from the pool, such wiring shall be permitted where installed in complete raceway systems of rigid metal conduit, intermediate metal conduit, or a nonmetallic race way system. All metal conduit shall be corrosion resistant and suitable for the location. The minimum cover depth shall be as given in Table 680.10.”
